Form 8-K for SPAR GROUP INC


20-Mar-2013

Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets, Other Events, Financial Statem


Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets

We, SPAR Group, Inc. ("SGRP" or the "Registrant"), and its subsidiaries (together with SGRP, "we", "our" or the "Company"), at 11:59:59 P.M. on March 15, 2013, completed its purchase of general merchandising and certain in-store audit service business assets (the "Purchased Assets") from Market Force Information, Inc. ("MFI"), a Delaware corporation and leading customer intelligence solution provider. The acquired in-store audit services include the price, point of sale, out of stock, intercept and planogram audits managed from MFI's New York office. With this acquisition, the Company has entered the growing in-store audit service business and expanded its existing general merchandising service and client base domestically.

The purchase was made pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement dated as of March 15, 2013 (the "Purchase Agreement") between MFI, as the seller, and SPAR Marketing Force, Inc. ("SMF"), a Nevada corporation and consolidated subsidiary of SGRP and its principal domestic operating company. A copy of the Purchase Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 hereto.

The Purchase Price under the Purchase Agreement consisted of a cash purchase price of $1,300,000 and the assumption of certain specified liabilities (principally those arising after the closing under the assumed contracts). In addition, SMF entered into a Consulting Services Agreement and a Transition Services Agreement with MFI, under which MFI will provide certain services, equipment and facilities for up to one year, and various assignments and other transfer documents.



Item 8.01 Other Events.

On March 19, 2013, the Company issued a press release (the "Release") announcing the Company's acquisition of the Purchased Assets and our expectations respecting those assets, subject to the caveats noted in the Release.

A copy of the Release is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K (this "Report") as Exhibit 99.1 and is hereby incorporated herein by reference.

Information Not "Filed"

The information in this Report and the attached Exhibits shall, to the greatest extent permitted by applicable law, not be deemed to be "filed" for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section. Such information, to the extent deemed or determined to have been not "filed" under applicable law, shall not be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing by us under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act", and together with the Exchange Act, the "Securities Laws"), except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

Forward Looking Statements

Statements contained in this Report and the attached Exhibits include "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Exchange Act, including (without limitation) any statements relating to anticipated, expected, intended, planned, prospective or desired customers, acquisitions, growth or markets, trends, updates, or other anticipated, estimated, expected or desired assets, business, capital, cash flow, credit, expenses, financial condition, income, liabilities, liquidity, locations, marketing, operations, profits, prospects, sales, strategies, taxation, valuation or other achievement, results, risks or condition. You can identify forward-looking statements in such information by the Company's use of terms such as "may", "will", "expect", "intend", "believe", "estimate", "anticipate", "continue" or similar words or variations or negatives of those words. You should carefully consider all such information and the other risks and cautions noted in the Company's Annual, Quarterly and Current Reports and other filings under applicable Securities Laws (including this Report, each a "SEC Report", each of which is available on the Company's website at http://investors.sparinc.com) that could cause the Company's actual assets, business, capital, cash flow, credit, expenses, financial condition, income, liabilities, liquidity, locations, marketing, operations, prospects, sales, strategies, taxation or other achievement, results, risks or condition to differ materially from those anticipated by the Company and described in the information in the Company's forward-looking statements, risk factors or other cautionary statements, whether express or implied, as the Company's anticipations are based upon the Company's plans, intentions, expectations and estimates and (although the Company believe them to be reasonable) involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause them to fail to occur or be realized or to be materially and adversely different from those the Company anticipated.


Although the Company believe that its plans, intentions, expectations and estimates reflected or implied in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, the Company cannot assure you that such plans, intentions, expectations or estimates will be achieved in whole or in part, that the Company has identified all potential risks, or that the Company can successfully avoid or mitigate such risks in whole or in part. You should carefully review the risk factors described below (See Item 1A - Risk Factors) and any other cautionary statements contained or incorporated by reference in this Report or in our latest Annual Report and subsequent SEC Reports. All forward-looking and other statements attributable to the Company or persons acting on its behalf are expressly subject to and qualified by all such risk factors and other cautionary statements.

You should not place undue reliance on the Company's forward-looking statements because the matters they describe are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other unpredictable factors, many of which are beyond its control. The Company's forward-looking statements are based on the information currently available to it and speak only as of the referenced date(s) or, in the case of forward-looking statements incorporated by reference, as of the date of the SEC Report that includes such statement. New risks and uncertainties arise from time to time, and it is impossible for the Company to predict these matters or how they may arise or affect the Company. Over time, the Company's actual assets, business, capital, cash flow, credit, expenses, financial condition, income, liabilities, liquidity, locations, marketing, operations, prospects, sales, strategies, taxation or other achievement, results, risks or condition will likely differ from those expressed or implied by the Company's forward-looking statements, and such difference could be significant and materially adverse to the Company and the value of your investment in the Company's Common Stock.

The Company does not intend or promise, and the Company expressly disclaims any obligation, to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, risk factors or other cautionary statements (in whole or in part), whether as a result of new information, future events or recognition or otherwise, except as and to the extent required by applicable law.
